Due to her constant need for change, making new friends any where she goes is not a problem. The thing is – she is unable to keep in touch with her old pals. For instance, she might be with you at this moment, in the next time with someone else, and a different person in the future. Gemini woman is brutally frank, honest when stating her opinions.
For example, in the first few paragraphs, we get a hint of how Connie’s mother is constantly nagging and complaining about how vain she is and how she is nothing like her sister. Speaking from a logical standpoint we can say that this negative backlash from her mother is upsetting to her, as it should be for any normal human being. Since she is receiving such negative attention in her home she goes out to seek “positive” attention. Her mother’s continuous praising of how great Connie’s sister June is, and how much better she is than her can be draining and irritating. Connie could just be going out to get the praise and attention that she needs or “deserves”.

She is also intelligent and witty, a quality often forgotten by those around her, conscious of the power dynamics around her. Yet it is her submissiveness, her willingness to please everyone, that ultimately seals her fate. She becomes the pawn of her father and the king and doesn 't have the ability to fight back, allowing herself to be taken advantage of. Her subservientness takes over her intelligence. Ophelia is the "perfect" daughter, and will do all that the powerful men in her life tell her to do.
The tension between illusion and reality focuses on Blanche’s relationship with other characters and the world around her. Blanche lives in a fantasy world of sentimental illusion because reality would ruin her. Throughout the play, Blanche constantly bathes herself as if she can wash away the dirt of her guilt and she only appears in semi-darkness and shadows, intentionally keeping herself out of the harsh glare of reality. Her sign of purity is an ironic illusion because of her growingly evident promiscuity, but even that is just a part of her act and is not the real Blanche. Blanche exerts efforts to maintain the appearance of being an upper-class young innocent woman, even though she is, by all accounts, a “fallen woman” (Abbotson
In the beginning both characters despise each other and behave brusquely towards one another. Elizabeth, the second eldest of the Bennet daughters, is an intelligent, sophisticated, and mature woman. She is originally off-put by Darcy’s air of pride and believes that he is “haughty, reserved, and fastidious, and his manners, though well bred, [are] not inviting” (Austen 18). The untrustworthy Mr. Wickham gives her reasons that support her opinions, and she prides herself in what she believes is her good judgment and faultless demeanor.

September 11, 2001 was a day that changed America forever. Four hijacked commercial airliners crashed into some of the United States ' most prized and recognizable landmarks, including the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. These attacks shocked our nation and were intended to provoke fear and a sense of vulnerability amongst Americans. Though the emotional impact of the attacks remains significant, one could argue that an equally devastating and long-lasting consequence was the sharp decline that occurred with the economy. The 9/11 terrorist attacks worsened the 2001 Recession, caused a major increase in foreign defense spending, and prompted an unprecedented initiative to
